Through the summer months, the DC Schools system uses the time while students are on vacation to upgrade the schools and to continue with building projects.
Although the students have not been in class for many months due to COVID-19, the projects are continuing.
The projects included in this year’s upgrades are as shown below.
Moving forward on the School’s Maintenance Center and Additional Class Rooms — Located at adjoining land at the New DCHS, this building, with separate entrances and no inside access will house the Building and Maintenance Center and Additional Classrooms. The new classrooms will offer HVAC/Plumbing, Diesel Mechanics, Oil and Gas classes and has one class room yet to have a determined use.
Completion of the Stadium Project — the uncompleted area on the visitor side, has been converted to the discus, shot put and additional football practice area. Another project that has not been started is a walking path from the School down to the field level to allow those who have parked in the upper lot to traverse the hill in a safer manner.
Paving around the Middle School and Elementary School was included as project this summer. This project is completed just in time to begin a face lift of the Middle School Science Lab. This face lift will include the removal of the individual water and gas sources capping them under the floor which will allow for the student’s work stations to be mobile.
